Medical Malpractice Verdicts & Settlements

Jury verdict for a medical malpractice/wrongful death action involving the misdiagnosis of ovarian cancer. The case went on appeal and was later settled for a confidential sum. In October of 1997, Glori Black found a small lump in her abdomen. To rule out cancer, she underwent an operation. Glori’s surgeon removed a huge ovarian mass. He sent the tumor to the lab for diagnosis to determine how he should proceed with the surgery. Defendant, the chief pathologist of the Ventura hospital, carelessly tested the mass and incorrectly diagnosed it to be dysgerminoma. About 5 months later, in 1998, Glori felt pain in her abdomen again. Within a month, an ultrasound showed another large abdominal mass. Glori was referred to Cedars-Sinai Comprehensive Cancer Center. The doctors at Cedars discovered that Glori Black did not have dysgerminoma. Instead, she had a very aggressive form of cancer that had spread throughout her abdomen. At twenty-two years old, Glori died in December 1998, about 8 months after she was correctly diagnosed. Glori was survived by her husband and son who was five years old. Binder Law Group, PLC assembled a terrific team of medical experts to testify at trial, and prevailed despite the fact that at least one of the defendant’s experts was supposedly world-renowned from Harvard.


Medical Malpractice Verdicts & Settlements

Medical malpractice case involving delayed diagnosis of meningococcemia on 10-year-old boy resulting in quadruple amputation. Plaintiff brought a civil action to recover for the damages caused to the plaintiff by defendants’ medical malpractice when the plaintiff presented to an Emergency Room. The ER staff and doctor failed to provide the plaintiff with essentially any care that he desperately needed to survive his bout of meningitis. Finally recognizing his critical condition, the hospital transferred the plaintiff to another hospital. Despite magnificent efforts by the other hospital’s pediatric intensive care unit, they could not undo the damage done by the delay plaintiff suffered from the defendants’ failure to care for him. Thanks to the second hospital’s doctors, the then 10-year-old plaintiff survived. Had he received fluids and medicines as he should have at the previous hospital, however, he would have had a much different result. He likely would have suffered no amputations at all, or only lost fingers, or toes, or even a hand or foot. But because of the inexcusable delay in treatment at the first hospital, the second doctors were forced to amputate all of the plaintiff’s arms and legs.

Mr. Diekmann’s van failed to negotiate a curve and left the freeway at a place where the State had failed to place guard rails.
